What exit is that at?

Jmeng, yeah, we usually tow empty (empty as possible anyway). Hell, that'a another 1400lbs or so that I don't have to drag around. Don't know what your boat holds but it's up to you.

The reason we stop at the Oasis is it's a truck stop and easy to manueuver around. Once you get into Destin most gas stations are a little tight for me to get into. Crew cab dually and 45' of trailer makes for an interesting ride around town!!!

I think it's the exit right past the Gulf Shores exit. I'll check Mapquest and make sure.

Just got word gas prices on the road in Destin are in the $3.60s so I guess we'll hold off on filling the boat up. I get about .30/gal discount at Exxon or Mobil so we'll just hope we can find one to squeeze into. That'll save us a 1000+ lbs plus 30 minutes or so in the morning.

Well, you should be within stumbling distance!!!

Harbor Landing is the two high-rise buildings just after you turn the 90 degree corner on Gulf Shore Dr.
